The longer I sew, the more trinkets I pick up along the way.
For the longest time I simply tossed everything (oodles of thread spools, needles, tracing wheels, sheers etc.) into one little sewing box. But then it started taking ages for me to hunt down the tool I needed. I had a vague notion that I should do something about my sewing organization.
And one day while perusing my favorite second hand shop, I found the most beautiful old tackle box. I snapped it up, happily carried it back to my apartment, and moved half of my sewing gear into it.
Unlike some of the tackle box sewing kits I have seen online, I didn’t put a ton of time into cleaning it. I like the rustic look . The only alteration I made was to tie on a garment tag I’d been saving since my last birthday. Mom wrote my name on it and used as a gift tag. She has the prettiest handwriting.
Plus, it says Wizard on the lid. How great is that?
